Had another look,it probably is a Hibiscus,just different..beautiful
You are right chico. It's a double Rose of Sharon. But they are in the hibiscus family and nurseries will sell them as hibiscus. Technically they aren't wrong.

Depending on what you use for a reference tool Rose of Sharon would not be even close to hibiscus. My Canadian Encyclopedia by Dorling Kindersley states Rose of Sharon is a flowering yellow bush in the hypericum calycinum family. Otherwise known as Aaron's Beard. Again - it all depends on geographical location what names plants go by.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
